This is, in a nutshell, a book about Otto von Bismarck for kids.
Germany became Germany under Otto Von Bismarck. Before then, it was divided into separate states and Otto von Bismarck was in charge of Prussia.
As mentioned above, von Bismarck might not seem an obvious choice for a book series devoted to “wicked” people in history. Still this series offers it’s young readers an age-appropriate look at the subjects. In this case it shows what von Bismarck is known for and gives them an opportunity to see if that is, indeed, wicked.
It’s also a good read for students interested in 19th century Germany.
